Watercolour Portrait Practice

Changed it up to revisit my application of darker skin tones and this one was pretty tricky. The light hit his face in so many places and it was a challenge to reflect this (no pun intended) as well as add 3 dimensional features to his face. Due to this the layering of colours in his skin tone was different, instead of having major shadows cast on one side of the face I had to capture smaller shadows at strategic points which lead to more layers and a larger colour palette range.

The eyes got me again, way more patience is required when dealing with those features! I kinda have a love-hate relationship with this subject I used, his haircut makes me feel as though his head isn’t proportional. Maybe I should have used my artistic license and given him a readjusted hairdo! Oh well!
